Colt 1911 Mags

So Im looking to get a 1911 here soon and after seeing alot of pictures and reviews I only have one question left.

Whats with the huge bulge on the end of the mags.

Now Ive seen double/single stacked mags that look like M9 mags (flat bottoms) and again Ive seen both with huge bumpers on the bottom of them.

Is there a reason to this? Im assuming its just certain brands that do this but I want to ask around first as Ive seen KJ with both and WA (just to name 2) with both. Thank you for any help with this.

Guitar, W. Jason

You mean like this?

The "bumper" on the bottom is a bumper. It gives you something extra to push on when you're seating the mag and something to hit the ground when you drop your mag.

On TM Hicapa type mags...the big bumper is just a piece of covers part of the actual mag body. That style of mag, in real steel, is used for competition (the Hicapa 5.1 is modeled after the STI 2011 series).
